New Imac has only USB ports for printer, but HP 6 has only serial and parallel ports

I just picked up a new Imac G4 but I want to use my existing HP LaserJet 6MP with it. The Imac has only USB and ethernet ports available, and the HP has only serial and printer ports. Is there an adapter that exists to solve my problem? How can I use this printer with this Imac most cost effectively?

These look like what I probably need. None say they work with Mac OS, though. Any knowledge/experience to confirm that they do?

Not sure about the ones listed above, just found out lot's of them won't work, but this one states it is supported by Mac:
